First though, as this is a 29 faces post, I did do a face a day this week and I am keeping up.
Here are they all in chronological order.
Somehow I didn't feel like painting this week. I did journal a lot though, just to keep a clear head.
And with my journalling I still wanted to make a face a day.
So I snuck them in between the writing.
Trying different styles.
Got inspired by DaVinci, prompted by Piarom from Mix it Monthly.
And doodled some of his ladies.
I think I need to explore this doodling with pen a bit more, because I like it, but I find it very difficult to shade anything.
So those are my #14-20 faces for the 29 faces in 30 days challenge.
I really like his ladies and they are so much fun to draw, so today I finally got the urge to paint something and felt I wanted to make something for the Mix it Montly challenge for september: Feathers from DaVinci.
So I got out my altered book journal and took the two ladies #16 and 17 and tried to paint them, making it #21 and 22.
And made a huge mess while doing so...
The colors to use were mint green, grey and hibiskus... and a feather.
I completely forgot about the feather, but I'll call them "birds of a feather" so that's that taken care of then =).
I love this image of the two ladies and think I may play around with them some more to see what I can do with them.
I must confess, I like the lady on the left best.
She seems lighter and more fragile than the lady on the right.
I feel she has a more protective role.
My altered book, however, is definitely not liking me and is showing some signs of wear and tear. I'm not sure if I can go on like this much longer, before it falls apart...
Now for the promised video's of the Midori style travelers journals for those of you who are interested. I'll post the "how I use them" video
and the first of the 3 tutorials on how to make them.
I also got some great news today when I found out that my Book of Books with the secret belgian binding was featured at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenges (Embossed).
I hope I made up a little for being AWOL for the past week and I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
